Decade: Rating: List Type:

" Not often does a movie character make such a harrowing personal journey that keeps us in deep sympathy all of the way." โ€” Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1408 Average listal rating (840 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.4
Cloud Atlas (2012)
" Surely this is one of the most ambitious films ever made." โ€” Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 1560 Average listal rating (1085 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
Argo (2012)
" Both spellbinding and surprisingly funny." โ€” Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 636 Average listal rating (428 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
End of Watch (2012)
"End of Watch" is one of the best police movies in recent years, a virtuoso fusion of performances and often startling action. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 602 Average listal rating (414 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8
Rio Bravo (1959)
" To watch Rio Bravo is to see a master craftsman at work. The film is seamless. There is not a shot that is wrong. It is uncommonly absorbing, and the 141-minute running time flows past like running water. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 87 Average listal rating (36 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7
El Norte (1983)
" From the very first moments of El Norte, we know that we are in the hands of a great movie. " โ€ RogerEbert.com
People who added this item 3116 Average listal rating (1981 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.4
" Hayao Miyazaki is a great animator, and his Princess Mononoke is a great film. " โ€ RogerEbert.com
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 836 Average listal rating (482 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
" Old age isn't for sissies, and neither is this film. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 1814 Average listal rating (1213 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.9
" Ang Lee's "Life of Pi" is a miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1241 Average listal rating (678 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.3
Lincoln (2012)
" The hallmark of the man, performed so powerfully by Daniel Day-Lewis in "Lincoln," is calm self-confidence, patience and a willingness to play politics in a realistic way. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1538 Average listal rating (887 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8
Persepolis (2007)
" It might seem that her story is too large for one 98-minute film, but Persepolis tells it carefully, lovingly and with great style. It is infinitely more interesting than the witless coming-of-age Western girls we meet in animated films. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 5235 Average listal rating (3580 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.5
The Departed (2006)
" What makes this a Scorsese film, and not merely a retread, is the director's use of actors, locations and energy, and its buried theme. I am fond of saying that a movie is not about what it's about; it's about how it's about it. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 220 Average listal rating (146 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.6
Arbitrage (2012)
" Hitchcock called his most familiar subject "The Innocent Man Wrongly Accused." Jarecki pumps up the pressure here by giving us a Guilty Man Accurately Accused, and that's what makes the film so ingeniously involving. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 4073 Average listal rating (2800 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8
Casino Royale (2006)
" Casino Royale has the answers to all my complaints about the 45-year-old James Bond series, and some I hadn't even thought of. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 197 Average listal rating (112 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.4
" Filmed over five years, in locations in 25 countries, it is the kind of experience you simply sink into. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 230 Average listal rating (128 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.6
"Oslo, August 31st" is quietly, profoundly, one of the most observant and sympathetic films I've seen.
People who added this item 111 Average listal rating (58 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7
" It is all melancholy and loss, and delightfully comedic, with enough but not too much magic realism. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 340 Average listal rating (232 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.2
" I hope you're able to see this film. You deserve to. And yes, it exists because we need for it to. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 84 Average listal rating (49 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.6
A Simple Life (2012)
" Here is a film with the clarity of fresh stream water, flowing without turmoil to shared destiny. No plot gimmicks. No twists and turns. Just a simple life. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 312 Average listal rating (171 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.4
Interiors (1978)
" Allen, whose comedies have been among the cheerful tonics of recent years, is astonishingly assured in his first drama. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 361 Average listal rating (224 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7
" There is no purpose to a suspense thriller, I suppose, except to involve us, scare us, to give us moments of vicarious terror. Play Misty for Me does that with an almost cruel efficiency. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 2816 Average listal rating (1825 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.2
" An exciting, sweet-tempered, heart-warming story with one of the most interesting friendships in a long time. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 634 Average listal rating (396 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.3
" This film is a remarkable creation, imagining a self-reliant community without the safety nets of the industrialized world. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1278 Average listal rating (836 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8
TRON (1982)
" A dazzling movie from Walt Disney in which computers have been used to make themselves romantic and glamorous. Here's a technological sound-and-light show that is sensational and brainy, stylish, and fun. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1693 Average listal rating (1047 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
" The experience of the movie is joyous. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 6474 Average listal rating (4494 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.4
" The movie is not about ghosts but about madness and the energies it sets loose in an isolated situation primed to magnify them. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
" It has two elements of genius: It creates beneath the opera one of the most grotesque places in the cinema, and Chaney's performance transforms an absurd character into a haunting one. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1448 Average listal rating (871 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
" Like its hero, Rebel Without a Cause desperately wants to say something and doesn't know what it is. If it did know, it would lose its fascination. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 24 Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 6.7
" As Kev, the veteran actor Weaving gives the performance of lifetime. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
" One of the great moviegoing experiences. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 2140 Average listal rating (1477 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
Prometheus (2012)
" Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" is a magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn't have the answers. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1214 Average listal rating (815 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Superman II (1980)
" Superman II begins in midstream, and never looks back... " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 511 Average listal rating (344 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.9
Stagecoach (1939)
" Seen today, Stagecoach may not seem very original. That's because it influenced countless later movies in which a mixed bag of characters are thrown together by chance and forced to survive an ordeal. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 2077 Average listal rating (1294 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
Hugo (2011)
"Hugo" is unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget, family epic in 3-D, and in some ways, a mirror of his own life. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1178 Average listal rating (794 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.6
" A smart, intense and moving film that isn't so much about sports as about the war between intuition and statistics. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 2560 Average listal rating (1810 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8
Drive (2011)
" Here is still another illustration of the old Hollywood noir principle that a movie lives its life not through its hero, but within its shadows. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 2077 Average listal rating (1347 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.2
Rango (2011)
"Rango" is some kind of a miracle: An animated comedy for smart moviegoers, wonderfully made, great to look at, wickedly satirical, and (gasp!) filmed in glorious 2-D. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 3555 Average listal rating (2460 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
Watchmen (2009)
" Another bold exercise in the liberation of the superhero movie. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 5431 Average listal rating (3765 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.3
" Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he's the real thing, a director of quixotic delights. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 6280 Average listal rating (4348 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
Sin City (2005)
" It's a visualization of the pulp noir imagination, uncompromising and extreme. Yes, and brilliant. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 4711 Average listal rating (3189 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
Ratatouille (2007)
" A lot of animated movies have inspired sequels, notably Shrek, but Brad Bird's Ratatouille is the first one that made me positively desire one. " โ€ RogerEbert.com
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 766 Average listal rating (460 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.4
Hereafter (2010)
" Clint Eastwood's Hereafter considers the idea of an afterlife with tenderness, beauty and a gentle tact. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 3507 Average listal rating (2316 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7
" David Fincher's film has the rare quality of being not only as smart as its brilliant hero, but in the same way. It is cocksure, impatient, cold, exciting and instinctively perceptive. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1832 Average listal rating (1203 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4
Salt (2010)
" It's like a rebuke to all the lousy action movie directors who've been banging pots and pans together in our skulls. It winds your clock tight and the alarm doesn't go off for 100 minutes. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 4072 Average listal rating (2688 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
The Exorcist (1973)
" If movies are, among other things, opportunities for escapism, then The Exorcist is one of the most powerful ever made. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 6170 Average listal rating (4328 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.8
Inception (2010)
" It's said that Christopher Nolan spent ten years writing his screenplay for Inception. That must have involved prodigious concentration, like playing blindfold chess while walking a tight-wire. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
People who added this item 3320 Average listal rating (2100 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.1
Into the Wild (2007)
" Sean Penn's spellbinding film adaptation of this book stays close to the source. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 1115 Average listal rating (672 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.1
" Eastwood's two-film project is one of the most visionary of all efforts to depict the reality and meaning of battle. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 7315 Average listal rating (5319 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8.2

SwornShadow's rating:
People who added this item 7756 Average listal rating (5589 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 9
" Iron Man and even more so The Dark Knight move the genre into deeper waters. They realize, as some comic-book readers instinctively do, that these stories touch on deep fears, traumas, fantasies and hopes. " โ€ Chicago Sun-Times
